Philharmonic Orchestra will return to a French family a valuable
painting that was looted by the Nazis and given to the orchestra as a
gift in 1940 by a Viennese secret police official.
The heirs of the painting's
late owner, Marcel Koch, will receive "Port-en-Bessin" by
neo-Impressionist Paul Signac at a ceremony this year, the orchestra
said on Saturday, announcing the latest step to address its past
association with Nazism.
